In this study of how syntax relates to meaning, Paul Pietroski defends the hyposthesis that combining expressions corresponds to predicate-conjunction and not function-application. Chapters cover a range of constructions involving causative and serial verbs, plural noun-phrases, and complementizer phrases. The book represents a lucid contribution to the field by a leader of the new generation of philosopher-linguists.
